Amazing Love of Christ
Love urged Jesus, to leave Heaven’s safety,
To come to Earth, to pay sin’s penalty.
I can’t comprehend, Jesus’ kind of love,
Care, concern, compassion, just from above!
In Gethsemane, love made Jesus pray,
Let this cup pass, if there’s another way!
But there was no other way, He had to die,
He did not back down, He did not e’vn try!
Love made Jesus endure, His horrid fate,
Violent torture, Christ did tolerate!
Severe whipping, made His bones to be bare,
The Bible says: they look on me and stare!
Love allowed Jesus, not one word to say,
In His defense, on that horrible day!
He was delivered, because of envy,
His own people, refused to set Him free
The Jews demanded, He be crucified,
Because of His blasphemy, He must die!
They stripped Him, and put on Him a scarlet robe,
And a crown of thorns, on Him they bestow’d.
In love to us, He went up to Calv’ry,
To pay our sin debt, and set our soul free.
Such amazing love, I can’t comprehend,
Deep, heart-felt love, He could never pretend!
The love of Christ, I cannot comprehend,
The Almighty Creator, calls me friend!
I am not worthy, to put on His shoe,
Yet this Majestic God, loves me and you!

An Open Door
Revelation 3:8 I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.(KJV)
An open door stands, wide open to you,
Will your faith allow you, to walk thru’?
Or will you turn away, because of fear?
When to the Promised Land, you are so near?
Fear or faith, which will it be for you?
Will you back away, or walk boldly thru’?
The Promised Land, is on the other side,
Where we can in peace and comfort, abide.
Your enemies, God shall expel from your sight,
When we trust God in faith, He makes things right.
The Promised Land, God says we can possess,
If thru’ that open door, we do access.
That we love the Lord God, we must take heed;
Trusting Him in faith, is our greatest deed.
Backing away in fear, taking the wrong path,
Does sadden His Heart, and brings on His wrath,
Going thru’ that open door, brings good things,
God opens His warehouse, of grand blessings.
To turn and run away, is a bad mistake,
Fear causes you, the Lord God to forsake.
Eyes of faith, eyes of fear, which will it be?
Have you e’er considered, eternity?
Faith in God brings you, to the Promised Land,
Fear brings only Hell, God’s reprimand.

Promised Land: (Ex.12:25; Num.14:34; Deut.6:3; 9:28; 19:8; 27:3; Josh.22:4; 23:5,11,15; Neh.9:23; Heb.11:9). Open Door: (Job 38:17; Ps.78:23; 1 Cor.16:9; 2 Cor.2:12: Col.4:3; Rev.3:8,20; 4:1) Acts 26:18 To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me. (KJV)
BECAUSE OF JESUS
Six grand things, no seven, I can name,
Because Christ Jesus, I trust and claim.
Such marvelous blessings, come my way,
From God’s storehouse, ev’ry single day.
God’s love, is the best blessing of all,
There to pick me up, each time I fall.
Hid loving-kindness, is amazing,
Nothing on Earth, can top this blessing!
Christ’s Presence is with me, e’er so near,
Removing my worries, and my fears.
What a grand blessing this is, indeed,
When to His loving will, I do heed.
The Father’s patience with me, ne’er ends,
Because His Holy Son, is my Friend.
The unwise world, simply cannot know,
This superb Blessing, that God bestows!
God’s faithfulness, is there all the time,
Day or night, and I can claim as mine.
God will always, be faithful to you,
If only righteousness, you pursue.
The pardon when I sin, is complete,
All my vile, ugly sins, He deletes!
Cast in the sea, of forgetfulness,
The Almighty God, surely does bless!
All our needs are supplied, so wisely,
For He watches o’er us, tenderly!
Body and soul, He blesses each day,
When we love and trust Him, and obey!
That great hope, of life eternally,
That blessing is assigned, O so free!
This hope is a feeling, deep inside,
That knows one day, with Christ we’ll abide!

With You as my Father, great blessings flow,
Father grant me each day, Your will to know.
Calling You Father, brings comfort to my soul,
For I trust You always, and give You control.
O heavenly Father, I know You are there,
You show great mercy and love, I know You care.
Most gracious Father, I feel Your Presence near,
Your Spirit assures me, I need never fear.
Calling You Father gives me great peace of mind,
You prove to me each day, You’re loving and kind.
When I call You Father, let me praise Your Name,
Let me ne’er bring to You displeasure or shame.
Let me always obey, and always love You,
Let me walk close to You and always be true.

Can They Imagine?
Crippled by arthritis, many are,
From all walks of life, both near and far.
Can they imagine, how Heav’n will be,
Believers will walk without pain, eternally.
Some are born deaf, and some are born dumb,
These handicapped, from all countries come.
Can they imagine, one day they’ll hear and speak,
But now here on Earth, ‘tis Christ they must seek.
Maimed and crippled, by war’s tragedies,
‘Tis a great sorrow, you must agree.
Can they imagine, again they’ll be whole,
For the Lord of Heav’n, has full control.
Backs are broken, in bad accidents,
So many lives, in wheelchairs are spent.
Can they imagine, they will walk again,
In Heav’n there will be no sorrow or pain.
Believers in Christ, can look forward to,
A blissful life, with a heav’nly view.
No more handicaps, they all will be gone,
We’ll live life eternal, with God’s own Son.

CANNOT GET TOO CLOSE
We cannot get too close to the Lord,
We must love Him; He must be adored.
We can’t feel enough of His deep love,
We need Him here, ‘til we get above.
We can’t know enough ‘bout our Saviour,
We need to know He’ll help us endure.
We can’t read enough of those precious Words,
We need truth, so false, we can discard.
We cannot serve Him too many hours,
We must be brave and never cower.
We must walk close in service to God,
We must love and trust, where e’er we trod.
We must be close; or Satan steps in,
We must study, or Satan will grin.
We must know of God, or Satan’s glad,
We must feel God’s love, or we’ll be sad.
Are you walking close enough to Him?
Or does your pathway sometimes get dim?
Do you study like He wants you to?
Do you really feel, His love so true?

CAST OUT ALL WRONGS
We must cast out anger from our life,
For if we don’t, we will have much strife.
Anger leads to bitterness galore,
With ill feelings, and malice, held in store.
We must put away pride as we live,
Pride will make you fall; it’s deceptive!
It makes you think you’re more than you are,
And pushes you from our God, so far.
We must cast jealousy far away,
If not, there’ll be no peace, in your day.
Resentment, and suspicious of others,
And wrongfully envying your brother.
We must not covet; God’s Word does tell,
These feelings of greed, we surely must quell!
Longing and craving for Earthly wealth,
Will greatly damage our spiritual health.
Cast out all hate; instead we should love,
As does our Lord and Saviour above.
We must do these things, as we live,
Or God’s blessings to us, He won’t give.

CHILD OF GOD
Child of God, there are things you should flee,
We must live ‘not of this world’, but godly.
Envy, railings, evil thoughts, pride and strife,
Flee quickly these things, in your life.
Do you suppose great gain is ‘godliness’?
Suppose again! wealth, is NOT happiness!
Love of money is the root of ALL evil,
‘Twill never bring peace, nor your soul fulfill.
Child of God, you should flee from all these things,
None of these, eternal joy can e’er bring.
Follow after righteousness, faith, and love,
Meekness, patience, godliness; all from above.
Fight the good fight of faith, each day you live,
For God will strength and comfort, to us give.
Godliness, with contentment, is great gain,
Faith and trust in God, will keep you from shame.
Child of God, do you want God to truly bless?
Seek ye first God’s Kingdom and righteousness.
Lay up for yourself, treasures in Heaven,
Blessings for you, from God, will be given.

CHILDREN OF GOD
As many as receive Jesus as Lord,
Will be God’s children, as told in His Word!
Born not of blood, nor flesh, nor will of man,
But born of Almighty God; ‘tis His plan.
As many as are led by God’s Spirit,
Are sons of God, when to Christ they submit.
The spirit of bondage to fear is shed,
The spirit of adoption has come instead.
If we are children in God’s family,
We are then heirs of God for eternity!
Joint-heirs with Christ, God’s well beloved Son,
Who was with God, ‘fore this world was begun!
We are heirs to eternal life in Heav’n,
Heirs to the promise, so long ago giv’n.
If we be Christ’s, then we’re Abraham’s seed,
Faith is counted for righteousness; faith we need!
As many as receive Jesus to save,
Are children of God, ev’n past the grave!
We are justified by grace, heirs of hope,
Eternal life is ours, no need to grope.

CHILDREN OF GOD
A child of God, is truly blessed indeed,
No other option, will to Heaven lead.
We must be born again, spiritually,
Just God’s children, have life eternally.
We must hunger and thirst, for righteousness,
Or God the Father, will not ever bless.
God’s only begotten Son, is our Bread,
Denial of Christ, brings eternal dread.
For Living Water, we must truly thirst,
Or by Almighty God, we shall be cursed.
Out of our bellies, shall Living Water flow,
When we believe in Christ, God wants us to know.
The Kingdom of God, is righteousness and peace,
And joy in the Holy Ghost, that shall increase.
Jesus’ Words brings joy, that in us remain,
Ask and receive, for this joy is great gain.
Our God will pardon, all iniquity,
His anger is brief, He delights in mercy.
He has compassion, when we truly repent,
To the depth of the sea, our sins are sent.
An entrance into Heaven, we shall receive,
If on the Lord Jesus Christ, we believe.
For of His children, God is not ashamed,
His House and our House, shall be the very same!
Are you God’s child, as you read this today?
Do you believe God, do you trust and obey?
Do you with Jesus, walk the narrow path?
Or are you on Satan’s road, luring God’s wrath?

CHOICES . . . May 2010 Messages
In life we’re faced with numerous choices,
As we listen to many voices.
Satan will tempt, continually,
From his deceiving voice, we’re ne’er free.
Immorality is wrong; this we know,
Yet softly Satan whispers: “Go with the flow.”
Will you listen, and his voice obey?
Or will your conscience win out today?
In this life, we have power to choose,
But our God giv’n right we must not abuse.
We must pray to the Lord that He may guide,
And that the wisdom He gives, be applied.
We make various choices each day,
Some are small, some big, along life’s way.
With each decision, our life does change,
Choices, our lifestyle does rearrange.
Choices we make form our destiny,
Decisions must be thought out, carefully.
Wrong choices can cause us much suffering,
So much grief and misery they can bring.
The most important choice you can make,
Is to accept Jesus, and ne’er forsake.
Choosing Jesus gives life eternally,
Only He holds blissful Heaven’s key.

CHOICES AND CONSEQUENCES
Life is a multitude of choices,
Some bring tears, others make us rejoice.
We make decisions, be they good or bad,
The consequences, make us glad or sad!
There are diff’rent roads, from which we choose,
Results can grant gain; or we can lose.
The paths we choose, mold our very life,
Some bring contentment; some bring great strife!
In this life, we can choose from many roads,
That can lead to light or heavy loads.
But in the realm of eternity,
There are just two roads, for you and me.
We can choose the narrow road, so strait,
That leads to God’s Home; Heaven’s gate.
Those who choose this road, are sparse and few,
The decision is yours; it’s up to you!
The only other road is smooth and wide,
Many are on it, taking long strides.
The consequence is sheer agony,
In a burning Hell, for eternity!
You choose; and accept the consequence,
The torture of Hell; or God’s presence!
Just two destinations; Heav’n, or Hell,
Which place my friend, will you choose to dwell?

CHRIST CAME . . . .
Christ came to bring life eternally,
To take sin away, and set us free.
He paid the price we could never pay,
We can look forward with hope, to that day.
Christ came to put peace and joy in our heart,
A wondrous feeling, that won’t depart.
The world cannot have the peace He gives,
We’re not troubled, nor fear, as we live.
Christ also came, to bring division,
For unbelief will bring God’s derision.
Christ will divide daughter from mother,
Also the son from his own father.
When you stand with Christ, there’s a price to pay,
For you must put Jesus first, alway!
When you accept Christ, some ‘friends’ flee fast,
But friendship of Christ, is one that lasts.
As you read these words, where do you stand?
Do you WANT to go to Glory Land?
Only Christ has the key to Heav’n’s door,
All other keys give what Hell has in store.

Christ Delivers Us
Christ delivers us, from the lowest Hell,
Belief in Him assures, there we won’t dwell.
In the Book of life, Jesus writes our name,
Faith in Jesus, removes eternal shame.
Christ delivers us, from the wrath to come,
We will not see, the Great Tribulation.
Being in Christ Jesus, we’re justified,
Jesus’ righteousness, to us is applied.
Christ delivers us, from the pow’r of darkness,
We’re God’s friends and children, whom He does bless.
A royal priesthood, let’s sing forth our praise,
The fruit of our lips, let’s gratefully raise.
Christ delivers us, from the curse of the Law,
Placing us under grace, where there is no flaw.
We’re cursed, if just one point of the Law we fail,
But God’s wondrous grace, has much to avail.
Christ delivers us, from this present world,
As all around us, evils are unfurl’d.
Christ was not of this world, neither are we,
He made us citizens of Heav’n, eternally.
Christ delivers us, from all evil’s pow’r,
Satan has no control, ev’n in his best hour.
If we submit to God, Satan will flee,
Christ delivers our soul, eternally.
Christ delivers us, from the presence of sin,
Delivered, from the bondage we were in.
One day we shall live, in God’s Home above,
Because of our God’s, great and awesome love.

Christ is the True Light, receive Him today,
He can cast out all darkness in your day.

And my friend, He can keep you, from God’s wrath.

Spiritually, He is the Food we need.
We will never hunger, never e’er thirst,
If in our heart, we place Christ Jesus first.
Christ is the True Vine, from Him comes our pow’r,
In Him we must abide, ev’ry single hour.
We’re just branches, so helpless on our own,
Without Him we’re nothing, God’s Word has shown.
Christ Jesus is, the True Water of Life,
He can cast away, all our spiritual strife.
He gives to us, His Spirit to abide,
Assuring us of Heav’n, where we’ll reside.

Leading and guiding, He does tenderly keep.
Of all His flock, He’ll lose not ev’n one,
This wondrous Shepherd, who is God’s own Son.

A record in place, ‘fore the world begun.
If we have Christ Jesus, Heav’n does await,
Reject Jesus, and it’s Hell’s one-way gate.
Christ is the True Witness, ‘tis O so true,
We MUST believe in Jesus, me and you.

The Words of Jesus, let us truly seek.

To a place where we, in bliss shall dwell.

CHRIST IS A GREAT LIGHT
Christ is a great Light, in darkness deep,
He’s strength to aid, when our path is steep.
He is warm sunshine, after a rain,
He’s calming assurance, after strain.
When my soul does tire, Christ brings relief,
Giving comfort and peace; expels my grief.
He’s my help and my hope, for e’er more,
And He has the ‘key’ to Heaven’s door!
Christ is merciful, loving and kind,
With grace for all; that baffles the mind.
He is love for e’er, loyal and true,
To all who trust Him; “Is that you?”

CHRIST IS AS NEAR . . . June 2006 Message
Christ is no stranger, in a place far away,
For He makes His Presence known, each single day.
He’s as close as the breeze, that caresses my face,
For I know that He’s near, by His amazing grace.
Christ is as near, as the dew on the grass,
Sparkling in the sunlight, as slowly I pass.
He’s as close as the wind, rustling in the trees,
For I know that He’s near, as my spirit He frees.
Christ is as near, as a snowflake when it falls,
His Presence ever near, when on Him I call.
He’s as close as the raindrops, falling on me,
For I know that He’s near, watching so closely.
Christ is as near, as the sand ‘tween my toes,
His Presence to my soul, makes comfort flow.
He’s as close as warm sunbeams, on a cold day,
For I know that He’s near, as He guides my way.
‘Tis an awesome privilege, to have Christ near,
And when I call on Him, He calms my fears.
‘Tis a wondrous blessing, we have each day,
For dear sweet Jesus, is just a teardrop away!

CHRIST IS THE ANSWER
I was evil, wicked, and filthy,
In God’s eyes I was His enemy.
Then one day I found a better way,
Down on my knees, to Him I did pray.
Like water, I drank iniquity,
I loved evil, and would not flee.
One day I awoke to find Christ there,
Before that time, I was unaware.
All my wicked sins were sheer delight,
I rejoic’d in evil; day or night.
And then one day the Answer I found,
Satan can no longer keep me bound.
One day I felt pricked in my heart,
Christ came in; and He did not depart.
He’s there, and all my sins He’ll forgive,
And in Heav’n, some day with Him I’ll live.
I awoke to find a better way,
Christ is the Answer, both night and day.
Outside my heart’s door, so patiently,
I found the Answer, waiting for me.

For with our God, there’s no other way!

His precious Blood washes away all sin,
Cleanses completely, deep down within.

We can do all things thru’ Christ the Lord,
For He gives strength, as told in His Word.
Christ is the ‘Key’ to great peace and joy,
With Him by our side, Satan can’t destroy!
Do not be troubled; do not have fear,

CHRIST IS THE LIGHT
Christ is the “Light” in all your darkness,
When He lights your path, you’ll have success!
In our dear Lord, there’s no darkness at all,
When He holds your hand, you will not fall!
“The Lord is my light and my salvation,”
He chose me from before the Creation.
Mysteries like this are not understood,
But if we love God, all will work for good.
“For the Lord God is a sun and a shield,”
Walk close to Him, and Satan’s darts you’ll wield.
When I shall fall, I shall rise once again,
If I trust and obey, He shall remain!
When I sit in darkness, He’ll be my “Light”,
Helping and guiding, in all my plight.
The Lord shall be a “Light” unto me,
He illuminates the dark; sets me free.
The world today is in darkness deep,
My friend, only Christ, your soul can keep!
He’s patiently waiting to hear from you,
He’ll chase your darkness, with His “Light” so true!
Darkness to God, is ALL sinfulness,
Turn to Him, repent; your sins confess.
Christ will lighten your every day,
Trust and accept Him; He’s the only Way!

CHRIST IS THE VINE
We are mere branches, Christ is the ‘Vine’,
He is the One who truly does shine.
We’ll bear no fruit, lest in Him we abide,
We must let Him our heart to guide.
We can do nothing without our Lord,
‘Tis stated o’er and o’er in His Word!
We can bear not one fruit on our own,
All we can do is stumble and groan.
We must abide in the ‘Vine’ alway,
He’ll then supply our needs, night and day!
But if from that ‘Vine’ so true, we break off,
That crafty old devil will laugh and scoff.

Christ Means So Much To Us All
Christ Jesus means so much to us all,
Without Him, we’d have such a great fall.
Jesus is our strength, day after day,
His wisdom helps us on life’s pathway.
As filthy rags, is our righteousness,
But with Christ’s purity, God does bless.
When on Jesus, we trust and believe,
That moment, Christ’s righteousness we receive.
Our faith in Jesus, does justify,
The verdict “Not guilty” is God’s reply.
In the courts of Heav’n, we’re not guilty,
From the burden of sin, we’re set free.
Christ sanctifies, God states in His Word,
We’re set apart, to serve our dear Lord.
One day we’ll share Christ’s glory above,
As joint heirs with Him, in eternal love.
Christ is our Shepherd, to show us the way,
Jesus leads and guides us, ev’ry day.
On dark paths of life, He is our Light,
Ne’er deserting us, no matter the plight.
Our Lord Jesus, holds Heav’n’s only key,
Just He can give us, life eternally.
For believers, a mansion awaits,
Reserv’d for us, inside Heav’n’s gates.
Jesus is our Master, and our King,
Let’s to Him daily, our praises sing.
He is our Saviour, He is our Lord,
He should be loved, He should be ador’d.

Do you know the Christ of Calv’ry’s road?
The Christ that carried that heavy load?
Weary, stagg’ring; with head bowed low,
A Man acquainted with grief and sorrow.
Do you know the Christ of Calv’ry’s road?
The Christ that left His Heav’nly abode?
He condescended for you and me,
Paid our debt, and set our sinful soul free.
Do you know the Christ of Calv’ry’s road?
The Christ from whom that precious Blood flow’d?
He was despis’d; we esteem’d Him not,
Yet our very souls, this Christ, has bought.
Do you know the Christ of Calv’ry’s road?
He can help carry your greatest load.
Only this Christ can grant peace and rest,
Joy you will have; for you will be blest!
Do you know the Christ of Calv’ry’s way?
If not, He cries out, to you today!
This Christ can grant eternal life above,
Heav’n will be yours, by His wondrous love!

Troubles seem as an o’erwhelming storm,

Distress or enemies, will not molest.
Within the cleft of the Rock I’ll hide,
You grant a safe shelter, when I abide!
On the Solid Rock, I’ll be content,
For I have peace and joy, not torment.
My sins are gone; Christ did justify,
For His precious Blood, He did apply!
On the Solid Rock, I’ll rest my case,
For then one day, I will see his Face.
The devil’s lies will never hurt me,
For my Advocate gives victory!

CHRIST, THE TRUE VINE
Christ is the ‘True Vine’ that God does keep,
Remember this, when Satan does creep.
If God kept Jesus, He’ll keep us too,
Abide in Christ, He’ll take care of you!
Christ is the ‘Vine’; we need His support,
Always to Him, we need to resort.
We as branches can’t live without Him,
Life would be unproductive and dim.
Nourishment comes only from the ‘Vine’,
We the branches, must make Jesus shine!
We must abide in Christ, or we’re useless,
Trust and obey, and our sins confess.
We can bear much fruit, if we abide,
Never to leave our dear Saviour’s side.
Love, joy and peace, patience and faith too,
A few of the fruits that can come from you.
We CAN’T produce these fruits, but He will,
When we abide, His Spirit does fill.
We must try to do God’s will always,
Giving Him the glory, all our days.

Christ the Vine
Christ is the Vine, I’m just a branch, fragile and frail,
Any pow’r I posess, is to no avail.
I must receive nourishment, from the Vine,
All His qualities, I should claim as mine.
Without Christ Jesus, nothing can I do,
I may refuse to admit, it, but it’s true.
I must abide in Him, and Him in me,
If I want to see, Heav’n’s wondrous beauty.
If not joined to the vine, a branch is worthless,
This is a fact, unbelievers won’t confess.
All strength and pow’r, from the Lord we must obtain,
Or that mansion in Heav’n, we will never gain.
Christ is the Vine and Hope, to Him we must cling,
For only Jesys, eternal life can bring.
So very few, fail to acknowledge this fact,
For living like the devil, is how they act.
If a branch is severed, from a vine or tree,
That branch dies; it’s dead, with this you must agree.
When someone rejects Christ, His pow’r they forsake,
And in this life on Earth, ‘tis a huge mistake!
Do you reject Christ? or accept Him as Lord?
Do you believe God? And take Him at His Word?
You must believe God, never call Him a “liar”,
Or you shall be cast, into the Lake of Fire!

CHRIST WAS THERE . . . Sept.2008 Message
Christ made the Earth, sky and sea; divided day from night,
He created everything, by the power of His might.
Noah made the ark, put the animals on three floors,
Then when everything was ready, Jesus shut the door.
Nimrod built a tower, that reached far into the sky,
Only on their pow’r and wisdom, did these people rely.
The pride of Babylon, came to an blunt halt one day,
Christ confused languages, and they fled in every way.
The pre-incarnate Christ, to Abraham one day did come,
And Abraham entertained Him, in his humble home.
The Lord told him “Lo, Sarah thy wife shall have a son,”
And everything the Lord promises, shall be done.
Christ destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, with brimstone and fire,
For the lifestyle there had become, an evil, wicked mire.
When she looked back, a pillar of salt, Lot’s wife became,
She disobeyed God, had no one but herself to blame.
Christ was there with Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego,
When into that horrid, fiery furnace they did go.
They refused to worship that giant statue of gold,
Their faith in God, gave them great courage to be bold.
Christ closed the mouths of the hungry lions in the den,
When Daniel disobeyed the king’s law, way back then.
He still prayed to Almighty God three times a day,
He was saved from sure death, when God he did obey.
Christ is there for us today, as He was for all of these,
When we trust Christ with our all, the devil cannot seize.
Only Jesus can save us from the horrid pits of Hell,
Just He can open Heaven’s gate, where all God’s children shall dwell.

CHRIST, THE DOOR
There is but one “Door” into Heaven,
Christ, God’s Son, whom to us is given.
Without Jesus, you’re God’s enemy,
Acceptance of Him makes you sin free.
God’s children have one qualification,
The Blood of Christ, gives us salvation.
We then have a privilege held in store,
We can enter Heaven, thru’ the “Door”.
Salvation for e’er, and liberty,
No more devil’s prison, we are free.
Access to the Father and His love,
Just thru’ the “Door” that will lead above.
A river of water, clear and pure,
And there’s a tree of life; so grandeur!
Almighty God shall take care of His own,
All who go thru’ the “Door”, when it’s shown!

(Rev.22:1-2; Jn.10:7; 14:6; Ro.5:2; Ep.2:18; Heb.9:8; 10:19-20)
The day of Christ’s Coming, will arrive soon,
Will it be night? or morning? or at noon?
Most folk won’t be ready, for that great sight,
The Rapture will be, as a thief in the night.
The Rapture will be, for God’s people alone,
Only for those, His Blood did atone.
Christ Jesus will come, and His Bride He’ll take,
All others that day, Christ will forsake.
Will you at the Rapture, be left behind?
Are you watching for Him? or are you blind?
Do you go along with this evil world’s ways?
Or are you prepared, for this special day?
The Rapture will come, as in Noah’s day,
All will be at ease, going their own way.
We must watch, for we know not when He’ll come,
If we’re not ready, we’ll miss that trip Home.
Two people in one bed, one stays, one will go,
The one left behind, will have much sorrow.
For he the Great Tribulation will enter,
He will have to wait to see Heav’n’s grandeur.
Two together, working out in a field,
But only one to Jesus’ call will yield.
And the other one, will be left behind,
And his fellow worker, he’ll not find.
God’s true children, must do more than believe,
If all God’s blessings, they want to receive.
We must trust, but we also must obey,
If we expect to go, with Christ that day.
At any moment, Christ Jesus could come,
High in the clouds, to take His Bride home.
This should be considered v’ry carefully,
My friend, it might save you much agony.

So many try to guess, when Christ will come,
To take believers, to their new home.
They’ve never been right, they never will be,
Only God alone knows, when Christ we’ll see!
Jesus will come only at God’s command,
To take believers, to Heav’n’s blissful land!
We must be watching, we must live with care,
We don’t want Christ to catch us, unawares!
We know not when Christ will come; we cannot say,
We know not what God has in store each day!
We must walk by faith, and not by our sight,
Imitate Jesus, let Him guide day and night!
If Christ were to come in the clouds this day,
Would you be glad to see that wondrous display?
Or would you cringe in fear when He look’d at you?
Because you don’t live, as He wants you to?
Will you be asham’d when He comes in the clouds?
Or will you praise Him with that grateful crowd?
Your reaction then, will depend on this day,
We must watch for Christ, and the Lord obey!

COME AS YOU ARE
You need God, this, He wants you to know,
He desires that your joy will o’er flow.
Turn to Him now, He’s not far away,
He waits to hear from you, this v’ry day.
Go to Him, like a beggar so poor,
He wants you to call on Him, this is sure.
God asks only one thing; to believe,
Without faith, not one, will He receive.
Go to Him now, with both hands empty,
God hates pride; go in humility.
The only thing full, should be your heart,
Full of remorse; then from sin, depart!
He’s waiting this day, so patiently,
He does not want you as His enemy.
God wants you to come; just as you are,
‘Whosoever’ means you, from near and far.
Young or old; in sickness or in health,
A poor lonely beggar, or man of wealth.
God offers salvation, thru’ His Son,
Believe and repent; Heav’n will be won!

COME AS YOU ARE
Come as you are, without one trace,
Of love, goodness, or inward grace.
Nor fitness for the Heav’nly Home,
Just come as you are He cries, Come!
Come, with all your troubles and fears,
With breaking heart and falling tears.
With all your sins and no wisdom,
Just come as you are He cries, Come!
He bore our sins on Calvary,
He paid the price for you and me.
Pardon waits, and our Heav’nly Home,
Just come as you are He cries, Come!
Come, at the Cross your burden leave,
Repent for all your sins; do grieve.
Just count as dross your earthly gain,
Come as you are, He will sustain.
Come, Come, without money or price,
Christ paid the supreme sacrifice.
Awaiting us, our Heav’nly Home,
Just come as you are He cries, Come!

“COME” HE SAYS!
Do you carry a cumbersome load
As you travel down life’s weary road?
Christ is there to make your burden light,
To give you strength for your ev’ry plight.
“Come” He says, I will make you God’s child,
You will no longer be defiled.
Your sin will be gone, so far away,
And I’ll grant you access to Heav’n some day.
“Come” He says, drink the Water of Life,
I’ll give peace and joy, and remove your strife.
Drink my Water, you’ll not thirst again,
But instead for e’er, I will sustain.
“Come” He says, eat the True Bread from Heav’n,
This ‘Bread of God’ thru’ which life is giv’n.
Belief in Me removes hunger and thirst,
And I must always in your life come first.
“Come” He does cry, to one and all,

COME UNTO ME
“Come unto Me” with your heavy load,
From Jesus, these tender words flowed.
Does sin’s burden weigh heavy on you?
Turn to Christ, for forgiveness so true.
“Come unto Me”; He never seems to tire,
So patient, yet, persistent desire.
Softly and tenderly Christ does call,
He calls ‘whosoever’, one and all.
“Come unto Me” He urges gently,
Only He gives complete victory.
There’s urgency in His invitation,
Please don’t reject God’s very own Son.
“Come unto Me” He cries, O, so meek,
For He came, all the lost ones to seek.
Jesus came, eternal life to give,
That we might in Heav’n, eternally live.

COME UNTO ME
Our Saviour cries out, “Come unto Me,”
He will ease you burdens willingly.
His yoke is easy, His burden light,
Christ is ready to help in your plight.
“Come unto Me,” He tenderly calls,
He can ease the burdens of one and all.
He’ll lift your heavy load, off of you,
You can be one of His chosen few.
When His yoke, you willingly accept,
He makes you God’s child, and He’ll protect.
No matter your load, He’s there to aid,
Thru’ calm or storm, you need not be afraid.
When you take Jesus’ yoke upon you,
It means you commit, to One who is true.
Your commitment must be a life long one,
You must stand firm, by God’s only Son.
When we join together with the Lord,
Wondrous praises from our soul is heard.
For now, Christ is there in time of need,
He lifts our load, when to Him we plead.
So softly He cries, “Come unto Me,”
“Bring me all your pain and misery.
My yoke is easy, my burden light,
I will assist you, no matter your plight.”
It’s senseless to bear your burden alone,
It’s foolish to suffer on your own.
Accept His offer to “Come unto Me,”
He’ll give peace and rest thru’ eternity.

“COME, COME TO ME, CHILD”
Friend, do you a heavy burden carry?
A great load, of sin and iniquity?
There’s One calling to you: “Trust and believe,”
Waiting patiently so Him you’ll receive.
“Come, come to Me child,” the Saviour cries,
Are you one of many His calls denies?
“Come, come to Me child,” He cries once more,
Just He can give access to Heav’n’s shore!
Just Jesus can lift your burden so great,
Why, oh why dear one, do you hesitate?
Turn to Jesus when you hear His call,
And Hell’s agony on you won’t befall!
Again He cries: “My child, come to Me,
“You’ll not be sin’s slave, for I’ll set you free!”
Your heavy burden, Jesus can remove,
When you accept His Son, God does approve!
“Come, come to Me child, I have paid the price,
The Blood I shed on the Cross, does suffice!”
His precious Blood cleanses and justifies
ALL who turn to Him when they hear His cry!
“Come, come to Me child,” He calls tenderly,
As He knocks on your heart’s door, patiently!
Please dear one, don’t turn Him away,
Accepting Him gives blessings, now and alway!

Doom's Day For Unbelievers
For those who don't believe God, Doom's Day is near,
The sorrow of today's times, God is NOT feared!
Hypocrites, please know, that Judgment Day looms,
Not believing God, brings the harshest doom!
WHY do people clutch, damnable heresies?
That will only lead them, to Hell's agony?
All souls are eternal, WHY don't you believe?
WHY go to the Lake of Fire, and for e'er grieve?
"A license to sin" is false, thru' and thru',
Christ gives NO permit to sin, to me OR you!
Biblical repentance, is what God desires,
And that's what will keep you, from the Lake of Fire!
Salvation ia a FREE GIFT, from God's grace,
NO work we do will e'er, let us see Christ's Face!
Christ has pow'r, to put us in God's family,
And THAT friend, gives us, life eternally!
You either believe God's Word, or you don't,
And old Satan blinds eyes, so that you won't!
God tells us, eternal life will always be,
Sin will NOT take it away, from you or me!
Christ paid our sin debt, in full He did pay!
So we can have, eternal life some day!
Yes! We still sin! But we can make it right!
Confess it to God, and be pleasing in His sight!
Confessing sin means, God is right and we are wrong!
Agreeing with God, takes us from Satan's throng!
Eternal life means, just what it tells,
Trusting Christ, exempts you from Hell!

Doubt is just one way, old Satan will tempt,
Not one single saint, from doubt is exempt.
Doubt starts out so small, so we must beware,
Or soon we'll be caught up, in Satan's snare.
In a flower patch, doubt is like a weed,
Stifling out the beauty, if we don't pay heed.
We must rip it out, as fast as we can,
On the sin of doubt, we must put a ban.
Doubt is like a flea, on a dog's back,
Ready at any moment, to attack.
Not one little chance, should it be given,
For doubt and unbelief, keep you from Heaven.
Satan will tempt you continuously,
And doubt he uses, frequently.
We must beware, and always be on guard,
For old Satan, is a deceiving fraud.
Submit to God, and the devil will flee,
Only the Lord from doubt, can set you free,
Trust Him, believe in Him, walk the right road,
You'll be relieved from doubt, the devil's goad.

Doubt, disbelief, distrust, uncertain, skeptical, Rebuked ny Christ: (Mat.6:30; 8:26; 14:31; 16:8; 17:17; Mk.4:40; 9:19; Lk.8:25; 24:25; Jn.20:27; Jam.1:6) James 4:7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. (KJV)
Few and Far Between
Few and far between, are God’s lost sheep,
My prayer is that them, You safely keep.
So few today, walk the narrow road,
As they speed rapidly, to Hell’s abode.
Few and far between, are those who obey,
Most turn from God, run the other way.
So few e’er think, of eternity,
As they race on, to Hell’s agony.
Few and far between, are those who reach Heaven,
To few, is the Gift of salvation giv’n.
‘Tis free to all, but most turn away,
So most will face Hell, on Judgment Day.
Few and far between, does this include you?
Do you love God? Are you one of the few?
When you trust Jesus, you become God’s heir,
And all the wonders of Heav’n, you will share.
Few and far between, OR one of the world,
Satan’s wicked lies, are viciously hurl’d.
You’re either God’s child, OR on Satan’s side,
And all with Satan, in Hell shall reside.
God wants no one, to be cast into Hell,
To there in horror, forever to dwell.
For salvation, God devised just One Plan,
That friend, is Christ Jesus, the Son of Man.
Christ is eternal life, and the only Way,
If you want to see Heav’n’s glory, one day.
Christ Jesus has Heav’n’s, one and only key,
If you want to live there, eternally.

Gambling With Your Soul
People gamble with their soul, every day,
They do their own thing, and go their own way.
They bristle up, if you mention the Lord,
And they don’t want to hear, God’s Holy Word!
You must not ever gamble, with your soul,
For when Judgment day comes, God’s in control!
When this life’s o’er, and it’s Heaven you desire,
To not obey God, brings you the Lake of Fire.
When gambling with your soul, the devil grins,
For the broad road you’re on, Hell’s gate you’ll win.
Gambling with your soul, is a tragedy,
You do NOT want, eternal agony!
Evil Satan will do, his utmost best,
Urging you to gamble, he gives no rest.
But gambling your soul, is a huge mistake,
You could find yourself, in Hell’s fiery lake!
Gambling with your soul, is when you won’t believe,
Rejection of Christ, nor His Work receive.
‘Tis turning your back, on God’s Holy Word,
And despising God’s Son, Jesus, our Lord!
Are you gambling, with your soul this v’ry day?
May I suggest, you go another way.
That broad road leads, where you want NOT to go,
Heaven should be your goal, NOT Hell below!

God is King
God is the Great King, of the Universe,
From His Throne of Grace, judgment is dispersed.
Blessings on the righteous, He does bestow,
But curses on the wicked, you need to know!
Sin in today’s world, worsens day by day,
Yet from it, fools refuse to turn away.
They are all headed, for the pits of Hell,
God will tell them: “There for e’er you shall dwell.”
Before the Flood, sin was out of control,
Just Noah alone, had a righteous soul.
That whole ungodly world, God did destroy,
An element of nature, God did employ!
God tries to warn people, of sin today,
But they just keep on, in their evil ways.
Many different catastrophes, arrive,
And many in their paths, do not survive!
The whole of Creation, is in God’s Hands,
He is in control, of all this world’s lands!
When disobedience, brings on God’s wrath,
No one knows what God, will set on your path!
Natural disasters, are common place,
A tornado whirls and twists, up into space.
Hurricanes, tsunamis, and great earthquakes,
Devastating droughts, and non-stopping rains!
God is the Great King, of the Universe,
He warns of sin, and judgment He will disperse!
If you are wise, God’s blessings you’ll receive,
While wicked sinners in Hell’s fires, will grieve!

Against all wickedness, black as night!
But He forgives all evils, I have done,
When I trust and believe, in His Son!
God’s goodness, in His only Son rests,
Believe or reject, that is our test!
Wisdom is to see Christ, God’s goodness,
If we can’t see it, God will not bless!
God’s goodness, is hard to understand,
For all eternity, is in His Hand!
Eternal life or death, He controls,
He’s in charge, of our eternal soul!
God’s goodness, can take us to Heav’n’s shore,
Where we can praise Him, for e’er more!
But if His gracious love, we reject,
From Hell’s fires, He will not protect!
Just faith in Jesus, can justify,
Proof in God’s goodness, we must rely!
God’s goodness, is hard to comprehend,
If we trust and obey, we’re His friend!

Before any day was, God was there,
With the Hand of God, none can compare.
When He works, who would want Him to cease?
Curbing His Hand, makes blessings decrease!
Arise O Lord God, lift up Thine hand,
Forget not Thy humble ones, in the land.
Though we stumble, we won’t utterly fall,
He watches His own, all we need do is call.
If my foot slips, in comes His hand of mercy,
His loving compassion, is the key.
He opens His splendid Hand, O so wide,
Revealing all right roads, and to guide.
Though I walk, in the midst of distress,
Thou wilt revive me, and give success.
His Hand is against my enemies,
His Hand is always there, to save me.
Once you are in, God’s powerful Hand,
NO one can remove you, please understand.
You are gifted, with life eternally,
Thanks be to Christ Jesus’, victory!
God’s Holy Hand, will also chastise,
Obedience to God, is SO wise!
We are not to fear man, who on Earth dwell,
We must fear God, who can put us in Hell!
God can raise His Hand in Holy wrath,
If you refuse to walk, on His path.
His Hand can be raised, in righteous ire,
He could condemn you, to the Lake of Fire.

Blessings from His hand: (Isa.43:13; Ps.10:12; 37:24; 94:18; 104:28; 138:7; 139:5,10; 145:14,16; Isa.14:27; 41:10; 50:2; 59:1; Mic.5:9; Jn.10:28; 3:16,36; 5:24; Rom.6:23; Eph.2:8).
Chastisement from His Hand: (Dan.4:35; Mat.10:28; 25:41,46; Lk.12:5; 21:11; Ps.62:11; Jn.3:18-21,36; 8:24; Heb.12:29; Rev.20:15)
God’s Hand can be raised in blessing, compassion, love, mercy and peace . . . BUT it can also be raised in anger, condemnation, criticism, disapproval, hatred and wrath. It is how we react to God and His love that decides how God will treat us. It is our decision. Do we love and obey Him? Or do we pay no attention to His continual attempts to get our attention . . . and keep on in sin, disobeying Him?
God loves so much, He sent His Son,
To pay the price, for sins we had done.
He died on that cross for us, that day,
The Father said, ‘twas no other way.
God is a God, of so much mercy,
He forgives us, making us guilt free.
Into the deep sea, our sin He casts,
Allowing us to forget, our past.
God is a God, of much compassion,
When we accept Jesus, His own Son.
Rejecting Jesus, brings on God’s wrath,
Keeping you firmly, on Hell’s broad path.
On God’s love, we should ne’er turn away,
‘Twould be foolish, on any giv’n day!
Rather, in wisdom, this we should do,
Reach out, hold love firmly, me and you.
Only a fool, would God’s love reject,
On our lives, it can have a strong effect.
Accepting God’s love, is wise indeed,
For God and His love, shall rightly lead.
God’s desire is that no one go to Hell,
Instead He wants all, in Heav’n to dwell.
God’s love, is what we all should desire,
For no one would want, the Lake of Fire.

Good vs Evil
Does the Word of God, your soul control?
Or are the things of this world, your goal?
Help Lord, for the godly man does cease,
As the wicked, do greatly increase!
All the upright, shall dwell in the land,
The righteous shall remain, in God’s Hand!
But all the wicked, shall be cut off,
And in fiery Hell, they’ll no longer scoff!
A godly man hates lies, right is his aim,
The wicked are loathsome, and come to shame!
The righteous shall sing, for joy of heart,
The wicked shall, in sorrow depart!
Blessings are on the righteous, each day,
While curses are on the wicked, always!
The fruit of the righteous, to Heav’n leads,
But the fruit of the wicked, God pays no heed!
The righteous are, a firm foundation,
The wicked are as a whirlwind, God shuns!
The path of the righteous, God does bless,
But the wicked fall, by their wickedness.
The righteous are by God, clearly known,
But the wicked by God, are overthrown!
The works of the righteous, shall be repaid,
While sins of the wicked, make them afraid!
The righteous are harmless, and without blame,
The wicked are vicious, with much shame!
The righteous are heirs, to a mansion on high,
While not one of the wicked, qualify!
Are you righteous, or wicked today?
Are you God’s child, or the devil’s prey?
Are you headed, for Heav’n’s grand beauty?
Or Hell’s fearful terror, eternally?

Have You E’er Thought About Hell?
Have you ever, really thought about Hell?
This place, where one day, millions shall dwell?
We should be burden’d, by this horrid place,
Where no one will e’er see, God’s gracious Face!
Have you e’er really thought, about Hell’s fires?
Eternal fires, that will never expire?
Have you e’er thought, these fires have been prepar’d?
For the devil, and all who his evils share?
Have you ever wondered, where can hell be?
This prepared place, for all eternity?
The center of the Earth, is what some think,
Where e’er it is, there’s no water to drink!
Have you e’er thought, about the darkness of Hell?
Deep, scary blackness, where evil ones dwell?
Have you e;er thought, that black too was prepar’d?
And will by all who God condemns, be shar’d?
Have you e’er thought, to Hell I don’t want to go?
This everlasting place, far, far below?
Move off that broad road, to the narrow path,
This will remove you, from God’s holy wrath!
That narrow path of light, will to Heav’n lead!
If to God’s Word, you will only pay heed!
To Heav’n or Hell, just two places to go,
Heav’n’s bliss, or Hell’s eternal sorrow!
CHOOSE THE RIGHT ONE!

The many temptations, simply persist,
But knowing He’s close, helps me to resist.

His Divine Love
On His divine Love, I cannot deny,
Instead on it, I completely rely.
Because of His grand, incredible love,
God sent His Son, from Heaven above.
Such sinners as we are, we'd ne'er reach Heaven,
God made just One Plan, and to us He's giv'n.
Jesus is the Truth, the Life and the Way,
Believe God, trust Christ, if you want Heaven one day.
On His divine pow'r, we must not reject,
Just Christ can make us God's child, and protect!
If we ever want to reach, Heaven's gate,
You must decide now, after death; it's too late!
You must never, from His wisdom, turn away,
He'll never lead wrongly, not any day!
He'll go with us, He'll counsel if we accept,
Then lead us to glory, and always protect.
When we fall into sin, which we ALL will do,
God's forgiveness is there, for both me and you.
Once He forgives sin, He remembers it NO more,
Eternal life leads us, to Heaven's shore.
Christ Jesus the Saviour, we must not deny,
And with His Commandments, we must comply.
"Another Jesus," so many serve today,
THAT Jesus will just get you, to Hell's broad way.
Once saved, always saved, eternal life is thine,
That street of gold your feet will trod, along with mine.
Such a grand Promise from God, Who cannot lie,
Believe Him my friend, and on Jesus rely.

Thou shalt guide me with Thy counsel, ev’ry day,
And afterward receive me, into glory!
Such grand Promises, continually bless,
To those who trust Christ Jesus, and Him confess.
How good God is, to those who trust and obey,
Their troubles and worries, He helps to defray.
Right roads are those, to which the Lord will direct,
And from the old devil’s darts, He will protect!
Only believing, can put you in God’s Hands,
And keep you away, from the devil’s commands.
The devil is God’s children’s, worst enemy,
He tempts and urges them, to live sinfully.
We must overcome the world, to have vic’try,
Only faith in Christ, gives life eternally!
We must believe that Jesus, is God’s own Son,
We must trust in His Work, on the cross He has done.
The Father has bestowed on us, His awesome love,
As He rules His Universe, from high above.
Calling Him “Father,” is a privilege indeed,
As He protects us, and provides for our needs.
All our needs, God does so graciously supply,
We, His children, must be wise, and on Him rely.
God loves us more, than we can comprehend,
And with Jesus, we can have no better Friend!
Our eternal home, is that mansion in Heav’n,
Our inheritance, that thru’ Jesus, is giv’n.
We must trust the Lord, as we live here below,
But trusting Him always, will blessings bestow.

I MUST HONOR YOU MORE
Father, I tend to minimize your majesty,
For I cannot comprehend Your purity.
Nor can I imagine Your wondrous compassion,
How You make me Your child and give me salvation.
Bringing You to my level, it seems I try to do,
Lord, let me remember, the awesomeness of You.
No one can compare, with the God of eternity,
Lord God, I want to be Your friend, not Your enemy.
Heavenly Father, I don’t fear You as I should,
I must reverence Your Presence, this must be understood.
Dear Lord I’m too casual, with how I feel about You,
Lord teach me to have more respect each day anew.
Most gracious Heavenly Father, I must love You more,
With ALL my heart, mind, soul and strength; You I must adore.
Lord, I fall short and Your commands I do not obey,
Help me Lord to love You, more and more each day.

I MUST MOURN
From all my sin, my heart is heavy,
Dear Lord, forgive my iniquity.
Repentance is something I must feel,
And Lord, I know, it must be real!
Jesus said I must mourn of my sin,
Turn to the Lord, rend your heart, within.
If we harden our heart, we can’t please God,
We must fear the Lord, where e’er we trod.
Our sin we must not try to justify,
Sin is wicked, sin God does despise.
We must admit we’re wrong, and God is right,
We must repent, with a heart, contrite.

I must receive comfort from my Lord,

Lack of His comfort brings great sorrow,
But His awesome comfort makes me glow!
O how I need His encouragement,
And His nearness is all sufficient.
When I’m down, He revitalizes me,

Is It True?
Is it true that Jesus, is the only Way,
To arrive at the gate of Heaven, one day?
Millions think, there are many other roads,
That lead to the safety, of Heaven’s abode.
Is it true that Jesus, can give eternal life,
And also assistance, to keep us from strife?
So many people, the Lord Jesus deny,
They refuse to believe, and on Him rely.
Is it true unbelievers, arouse God’s wrath,
Because they stay with Satan, on his broad path?
Multitudes think God is just, a God of love,
They think everyone goes, to Heaven above.
Is it true that salvation, can be lost,
And that falling from grace, is the ultimate cost?
Folks around the world, believe this heresy,
And millions will wind up, in hell’s agony.
The Truth is, Christ Jesus IS the ONLY Way,
To reach the gate of Heaven, one day.
The Truth is, eternal life is for ever,
And NOTHING, from the Lord Jesus can sever.
The Truth is, our God is love, and I agree,
BUT, God’s wrath can send you, to Hell’s agony.
The Truth is, just a “few” will go to Heaven,
For the majority, Hell will be given.
Once you are God’s child, and in His family,
One day you will experience, Heaven, pleasantry.
Once you are saved, you are saved for always,
God’s great grace will be with you, all of your days.

More Shame Than Glory
More shame than glory, on Judgment Day,
For I'll be judged, how I walked my way.
I could have, I should have, why didn't I?
Things I should have done, I let go by.
I could have cared more, revealing God's love,
I chould have done more, in this world of push and shove.
On Judgment Day, much shame will come my way,
I won't have much glory, on that day.
I could have been, more patient with others,
I should have been, tolerant of my brothers.
More shame than glory, the Judge will say,
If I don't change and do right, for that day.
I could have had, much more compassion,
I chould have to others, with mercy run.
I'd rather have glory, but will get shame,
If I don't love and adore, Jesus' Name.
I could have told more people, of the Lord,
I should have, according to God's Word.
I'll be accountable, for many things,
Shame will be one thing, Judgment Day brings.
I could have done, so very much more,
I should have told more folks, of Heav'n's shore.
I must think more, of eternity,
If I want no shame, but instead glory.
I deserve no glory at all, just shame,
But I'll see Heav'n's glory, thru' Jesus' Name.
Help me do right Lord, in days that remain,
So that glory, not shame, I shall gain.

NO Fear of God!!
The fear of God, is something people exclude,
Reverence, respect, obedience, we must include!
Yet in today's world, there is NO fear of the Lord,
They simply oppose Him, and twist His Holy Word.
The fear of God, must always take first place,
Neglecting this respect, you'll NOT see Jesus' Face!
We must fear God, both now and for e'er more,
If we e'er want to walk, on Heaven's wondrous shore!
God's Holy Book, always leads us in right paths,
But, when we don't fear Him, it brings down His wrath!
He wants His children, on the narrow and strait,
For just that road leads us, to Heaven's entrance gate!
With NO fear of God, Judgment Day will terrify!
Judge Jesus will cast you, into Hell's agony!
There you will remain, for all eternity,
The choice is yours: Hell OR Heaven's beauty!
Few in today's pulpits, teach the 'fear of God,'
Twisting, deceiving Truth, bringing it down to fraud.
NO reverence for God, leaves just one place to go,
Stay on the devil's road, and Hell you'll soon know!
People today, want only to hear good things,
They don't want to hear of sin, and what it brings!
So the "Word-Faith" heretics, kick it into gear,
Bringing the false garbage, people want to hear!
Man's vain doctrines, will NEVER save your soul,
Believe God, trust Christ, let Jesus have control!
Just Jesus can give you, life eternally,
Friend, believe it, or you'll get Hell's agony!

Not once, in all the many years gone by,
Did you ever forsake me, or deny.
Long before I trusted you, you were there,
I could not see then, how much you did care.
Even as a child, so wild and carefree,
You were there always, watching me closely.
You never gave up on me, no, not once,
Always so patient, waiting, for my “yes”.
You were there in my childhood, and my teens,
The life I led, was surely not pristine.
On to adulthood, I still did reject,
Not once did you leave, but only protect.
Finally your Words did lodge in my heart,
I pray that I never, from you depart.
May I ever be grateful to my Lord,
May I walk with Him, in willing accord.
Not once, in all my years, did you forsake,
Thru’ all my sorrows, and many mistakes.
‘Tis a joy to know you are there always,
Granting grace, mercy, and peace, all my days.

We have an extremely patient God!
OCEAN OF LOVE
God’s ocean of love, is all around,
So deep and so wide, it does confound.
Thru’ this ocean, each one of us sail,
When we trust by faith, He does avail.
Humbly we sail, as we live each day,
His great love is around us always.
Tho’ storms of life, make waves high and wide,
We’ll come out fine, on the other side.
We can sail on His ocean, peacefully,
We will not sink, He gives victory.
As we journey onward in this life,
His ocean of love, keeps us from strife.
Onward we sail, thru’ the rocky shoals,
His will in our life, should be our goal.
His brilliant Light, as a beacon shines,
I claim God’s ocean of love as mine.
Humbly we sail in God’s ocean of love,
His gracious concern comes from Heav’n above.
He watches us closely, as we sail,
Watching the good things, too when we fail.
Only my Saviour can safely guide,
Great pow’r and wisdom He does provide.
Grace and mercy from our Lord does flow,
As thru’ God’s ocean of love we go.
Let’s not fail Him, as thru’ life we proceed,
To His soft gentle voice, we must pay heed.
Thru’ God’s ocean of love, let’s keep on,
Upheld by the Hand, of God’s own Son.

OUR PERFECT GOD
He’s the ‘Rock’, His work is always perfect,
With Him, no plan or work is e’er defect.
A God of truth, without iniquity,
And to please Him, this is how we must be.
Just how can we be without iniquity?
All sin; on our own, we are infirmity.
But God made a plan, ‘fore He made the world,
To be perfect, we must trust Christ, as Lord.
When we trust Jesus to save us from Hell,
God makes us His children, His Word does tell.
Christ was made sin for us, who knew no sin,
We’re made the righteousness of God in Him.
As for God, His way is always perfect,
He’s always right; we should always respect.
He’s a buckler to all that trust in Him,
Believe what He says, life won’t be so grim.
The Lord God is righteous, in all His ways,
There’s nothing wrong or unjust, all His days.
He’s nigh unto all that call upon Him,
Don’t wait too long, that your chance grows slim.
What our God does, it shall be forever,
I’m His today; this tie He’ll not sever.
His perfect salvation plan will rescue,
This means “Whosoever”, it means me and you!

REWARD? OR LOSS?
As you consider at the set of sun,
Counting the good deeds that you have done.
Did you do those things to glorify
Our loving Saviour, in His Home on High?
As you reflect o’er the day that’s past,
Will things you’ve done, in eternity last?
All our works will be tried, one by one,
All motives will be judged by God’s Son.
A reward will be giv’n if our works stand,
All we do for Christ, while in this land.
All works done selfishly will be burned,
All our proud motives will be spurned.
Before the Great Judge, we’ll stand one day,
Do you know my friend, what you will say?
In His awesome Presence, truth will out,
We’ll suffer loss; OR we’ll sing and shout!

More like Jesus, I know I should be,
As I walk onward, to eternity.
So many obstacles, as I walk,
I must beware, of thoughts, deeds and talk.
We all have a “road map,” as we go,
But few use it, causing great sorrow.
We will face many detours, on our way,
We all should use the “road map,” ev’ry day.
The Bible will show us, only right paths,
Keeping us away, from God’s Holy wrath.
Temptation will come, as we walk on,
Ask yourself, “What would Jesus have done?”
More like Jesus, the Bible will show,
So, to the “road map,” we all must go.
The “road map,” will never wrongly lead,
If we would just consult it, and pay heed.
The Bible will guide us, in all right ways,
God will gladly lead us, all of our days.
But we must truly trust Him, and obey,
For to reach Heaven, there’s NO other way!
Our road in life, may get rough and steep,
Count on the “road map,” to safely keep.
The Bible keeps us, on right roads each day,
And makes us more like Jesus, on our way.
When you take a trip, a “road map” you need,
On our trip to Heav’n, the Bible we must heed.
Trust Jesus to help you, each single day,
For the Bible says, He’s the only Way!

Saying Evil is Good
In all that false teachers, do and teach,
Naive sheep in the flock, they try to reach.
Deadly, damning doctrines, are their aim,
As they willingly play, the devil’s game.
Damnable heresies, black as night,
Skillfully disguised, as works of light!
Greedy wolves, spread their poison each day,
As they travel, their destructive way!
From multiple pulpits, and TV,
These evil ones lead, to Hell’s agony.
They are well loved, say what folks want to hear,
But they are just tickling, itching ears!
These heretics, make evil seem good,
As they give garbage, for spiritual food.
Their deadly heresies, you must inspect,
Satan tries to deceive, even God’s elect!
There are many false prophets, all around,
And the heresies they spout, do abound!
False apostles, workers of trickery,
Trying to lead you, to Hell’s agony!
We must be on guard, we must beware,
For our eternal soul, we must take care!
In God’s Word, we must stay e’er so deep,
And a firm stand with Jesus, we must keep!
Open that Good Book, open it and read,
And to those Words of Truth, please pay heed!
Evil is NOT good, and dark is NOT light,
We must keep the Truth, always in sight!
We must stay in God’s Book, the Truth to know,.
To stay away, from horrid Hell below!
Biblically illiterate, you don’t want to be,
If you want life in Heaven, eternally!

TAKE UP YOUR CROSS
Jesus told the rich man, words to him dure,
“Go sell what you have and give to the poor.”
The man was grieved; for much things he had,
He would not put Jesus first, so, so sad!
To ‘Take up your cross’ , is yourself to deny,
Always put Christ FIRST, your wants, crucify!
If you can’t place Him FIRST in all you do,
You’re just not worthy of His love so true.
If you love things of the world, more than He,
Placing possessions first; Jesus will flee!
If you place any person before Him,
Eternal life for you is surely dim.
‘Take up your cross’; deny yourself today,
He’ll help bear your burden as you walk the way.
What shall a man gain if he lose his soul?
Always put Jesus FIRST, He’s in control.
For the knowledge of Christ, I count all things loss,
I trying my best to ‘Take up my cross’.
I count it all joy that He calls me “friend”,
Heaven awaits, when this life on Earth ends.

Thank You Father
Thank You Father, for making a plan,
To save the vile souls, of sinful man.
You knew all people, would disobey,
So You sent Christ, our sin debt to pay.
Sinful mankind, will always go wrong,
For they walk the road, with Satan’s throng.
What the world has to offer, they choose,
But when Judgment Day comes, they will lose.
Thank You Father, for sending Your Son,
‘Tis a wondrous thing, that You have done!
The plan of salvation, that You made,
Belief in Christ, and our debt is paid!
So many, just refuse to believe,
So simple a way, life they’ll receive.
They think there is something, they must do,
To ever get, a Heavenly view.
Thank You Father, that the poor can gain,
A Heav’nly home, where they can remain.
Not one penny, will they have to spend,
The simply on Jesus, must depend!
Thank You Father, that cripples can know,
Heav’n can be yours, if you want to go.
Faith in Jesus, can justify you,
And then you can be, one of the few!
Education, money, power, fame,
None can access Heav’n, just Jesus’ Name!
Thank You Father, that it is this way,
Believe what Christ did, on the cross that day!

THAT OLD MAN IS DEAD
Evil, immoral ways wrack’d my life,
I had discontent, worry and strife.
Doing wickedness; I had no dread,
But praise You Lord, that old man is dead!
Gossip, cursing, backbiting and lies,
Jesus, I rejected and denied.
On Satan’s temptations I was fed,
Thank You Jesus, that old man is dead!
Worldly pleasures, I desp’ratly sought,
On my mind were evil, impure thoughts.
Sins were rampant; by Satan I was led,
Praise the Lord God, that old man is dead!
I’m so grateful, that old man is dead,
Jesus gave me a new one instead!
I’m a new creature; all things are new,
Thank You Jesus, I’m one of the “few”.
He gave me a new spirit and heart,
That old, hard, evil one did depart.
My spirit’s hunger and thirst were fed,
Praise Christ Jesus, that old man is dead!

When I feel naked, it clothes me rich and warm,
When I’m tempest toss’d, ‘tis a refuge from the storm!
The Bible is a Sun, when gloom does depress,
Changing a dreary day, to one of brightness!
When I feel I’m sinking, in deadly quicksand,
The Bible reaches out, and grabs my weary hand!
When I feel as if, nothing at all I know,
Knowledge and wisdom, from the Bible flow!
When I feel lonely, great friends I find therein,
When I’m ill, the Bible, is my best Medicine!
Struggling in life, the Bible gives me wings,
Consolation and pow’r, it truly brings!
When the world around, seems ugly and bare,
The Bible is a Garden, of beauty so fair!
The Bible gives comfort, by showing God’s love,
And great joy of knowing, there’s Heav’n above!
There’s a “mansion” for me, waiting up there,
And a wondrous Saviour, who truly cares!
God will forgive us, the Bible does tell,
And we can for eternity, in Heav’n dwell!
But we must trust Christ, who is so perfect,
And Him as Saviour and Lord, we must accept!

The Bible Does Not Exaggerate
The Bible, only the Truth does tell,
It speaks of Heav’n, but also of Hell.
Heav’n is a place, of bliss and glory,
While Hell is a place, of agony.
The Bible clearly states, right from wrong,
It tells us to avoid, Satan’s throng.
The eternal God, wants us to know,
To His Home on High, He wants us to go.
Many Promises to us, God makes,
Such as, “I’ll ne’er leave you, nor forsake.”
All God’s Promises, are ours to claim,
Let us claim them, in Christ Jesus’ Name.
When troubles arise, where do you look?
Have you e’er thought of, God’s Holy Book?
All correct answers, can come your way,
If you are wise, you’ll do it today,
The Bible does not, exaggerate,
On the worth of Jesus, O’ so great.
It speaks of His awesome love, so true,
And what He endured, for me and you.
Have you e’er consider’d, what He has done?
This Man, God’s only begotten Son.
He paid a sin debt, He did not owe,
So we’d not have to go, to Hell below.
Exaggeration, God’s Word does not do,
All its pages, are completely true.
What it states about Christ, you must believe.
Or the glory of Heav’n, you’ll not achieve.

THE ‘CROSS’ IS A REMINDER
The ‘Cross’ is a reminder to my heart,
That from His love, I should not depart.
His love is so very precious to me,
He removed sin’s stain, gave victory!
The ‘Cross’ is a reminder to my soul,
That He is always in full control.
He so died, that I might go to Heaven,
Out of love; what a GIFT He has given!
The ‘Cross’ is a reminder to my mind,
That such love as His, you simply can’t find!
He died on that ‘Cross’ in sheer agony,
To save us from Hell; from God’s wrath, we’re free!
The ‘Cross’ reminds me to always thank Him,
For all things He brings; whether bright or dim.
There’s a silver lining in all clouds He sends,
All our hurts and deep heartaches, He mends.
The ‘Cross’ reminds me of joy and peace,
These blessings from God give great release.
The comfort and warmth these things surely give,
Make me so happy that my Saviour lives!
The ‘Cross’ reminds me of ne’er failing love,
Pure, everlasting love; from God above!
Love so marvelous, He gave us His Son,
If you accept Him; salvation is won!

THE CROSS OF CHRIST
The Cross of Christ looms, ‘tween God and you,
Those to make it across, are very few.
Christ wants to be your Saviour and Friend,
But to most today, His Cross offends.
If you don’t believe this very day,
‘Tis the Cross of Christ, that’s in the way.
Christ is standing outside your heart’s door,
To give eternal life, and so much more!
Christ on the Cross, paid your way to Heav’n,
It’s a Gift of God, so freely giv’n.
Our Lord holds the key to Heaven’s gate,
But you must accept Him, ‘fore it’s too late.
The Cross of Christ can be a bridge for you,
Leading directly to God so true.
You are able to live in Glory Land,
But you must take hold of Jesus’ Hand.
On one side or the other, you stand,
Of the Cross of Christ, and Jesus’ Hand.
If you stand with Christ, you’ll go to Heav’n,
To stand beyond the Cross; Hell is giv’n.

THE ‘DAY’ OF THE LORD
Loftiness of men one day shall fall,
In that ‘Day’, they shall all fear God’s call.
Haughtiness of men shall be made low,
Trying to hide from the God they didn’t know.
Exalted shall be the Lord alone!
Evil, wicked men, shall wail and groan.
The ‘Day of the Lord’ will crush all wrong,
All the proud and haughty, and the strong.
Those that are lifted up shall be brought low,
God will one day, His sovereignty show.
When He ariseth, the Earth to shake,
All evil men, in their shoes will quake.
They will fear the Lord and His majesty,
For He’ll punish all for their iniquity.
He will shake the Earth, out of its place,
Gone is the day, of mercy and grace.
The ‘Day of the Lord’ cometh; ‘tis near!
His wrath and fierce anger, all should fear.
He will lay all the land desolate,
And destroy all sinners, out of it.
You need not go thru’ this awful ‘Day’,
Believe His Word; then trust and obey.
Accept His Son; He will save your soul,
Christ will grant Heav’n; He’s in full control!

THE KINGDOM OF GOD
“Seek ye first the Kingdom of God,” are His words,
We need God’s righteousness, to be in accord.
Christ is the Ruler, in the Kingdom of God,
We must make Him ‘Master’; not some evil fraud.
The Kingdom of God must be firm in our hearts,
And Christ must be ‘King’, or from us He’ll depart.
His great Kingdom will last for eternity,
Trust and obey Him, and Heav’n is your decree.
Christ sits on the throne, in the Kingdom of God,
The Son of the Highest; and no one shall prod.
He’ll reign forever, His Kingdom has no end,
He is our Saviour; and wants to be your ‘Friend’.
Seek the Lord and His strength, and Face evermore,
If you want to see God, and live on Heav’n’s shore.
Call on Him, seek Him while He may yet be found,
Those who don’t, in Hell’s prison, they will be bound.
“Ask, it shall be given, seek, and ye shall find,”
Christ tells us this, so we won’t be left behind.
“Knock, and it shall be opened unto you,”
God can’t lie; this is precious little to do.
If we’d seek His Kingdom first, as Christ does stress,
He’d give us food and water, and clothes to dress.
He knows what we need, each day to get thru’,
“O’ ye of little faith” --- is He speaking to you?

THE WORLD OVERLOOKS THE GREATEST BLESSING
The world overlooks, the Greatest Treasure,
All they desire, is riches and pleasures.
Just of the ‘here and now’, do people think,
They don’t realize that they, are on death’s brink.
The Greatest Treasure, the world cannot see,
For they never think, of eternity.
Always too busy, to ev’n look His way,
They are too busy, rushing thru’ their day.
The world overlooks, what Jesus can do,
He and He alone to Heav’n, can take you.
But most people think, there are many ways,
And they just reject, what the Bible says!
When the world, the Greatest Treasure denies,
Satan rejoices, and false hopes applies.
People follow him, on that big broad road,
That lead to agony, in Hell’s abode.
The world speaks of Christ, just in blasphemy,
Cursing, vile jokes, friend, this should not be!
And they call those who love Him, Jesus’ freaks,
On Judgment Day, fear shall come, when Jesus speaks.
IF the world would just turn, to the Greatest Treasure,
He could give them comfort, peace and pleasure.
His grace is sufficient for us, always,
And He ne’er leaves, ne’er forsakes, all our days.
For the whole world, this Great Treasure is there.
Jesus is available, everywhere!
Be wise my friend, accept Jesus today,
For to get to Heav’n, there’s no other way!

THERE TO GUIDE
He leads me to green pastures and cool still waters,
Guiding me truly, so nothing else does matter.
He has promised to supply our every need,
What more can we ask of Him? we ought to take heed.
To the meek He has promised to teach us His way,
Always there to guide us, during the night or day.
For He is our God, for today and forever,
With us unto death, allowing nothing to sever.
He is there to guide us with His counsel so great,
If we would but listen to Him, we could walk straight.
Most follow Satan, on the crooked path of sin,
Even many Christians, to temptations give in.
So what is the answer, as we go thru’ the day?
This I can tell you, from old Satan keep away!
Turn your eyes upon the One who really is true,
He’s always there to guide you, whatever you do!
Listen closely for that still, small voice of the Lord,
His Spirit within you, really wants to be heard!
Don’t be too busy or indifferent this day,
For He is there to guide you, each step of the way!

Things God Cannot Do
Consider, are there things God cannot do?
There are many; don’t doubt it, this fact is true.
God cannot lie, all words He speaks stand firm,
And of eternal life, this He does affirm.
God cannot sin, He is eternally pure,
Of this fact, we can be forever sure.
Sin or evil, He cannot tolerate,
You must accept Christ, to see Heav’n’s gate.
God cannot reject, someone who believes,
He will accept them, when Christ they receive.
God cannot, in our life, take second place,
He must be number One, if we want His grace.
Your way to Heav’n, God cannot accept,
You must use His Plan, His Son, so perfect.
On Christ’s precious Blood, God cannot turn His back,
Without Christ Jesus, God’s friendship you lack.
God cannot change the past, but there’s no need,
For His all-knowing wisdom, does exceed.
Our forgiv’n sins, God cannot remember,
We need not doubt, we need not cower.
All the things our awesome God cannot do,
Are marvelous blessings, for me and you.
Our God is gracious, and full of mercy,
Loving His children, for eternity.

THINGS JESUS DID NOT DO
Many ponder on things Jesus did do,
Wonderful! for He was love, thru’ and thru.
But many and great are the countless things,
Things He did not do, that to us blessings bring.
As He hung on the cross, many things He could have done,
For He had vast pow’r, He was God’s own Son!
But Jesus did not, His own will demand,
Instead committed His all, to His father’s Hand!
He did not defend Himself, when He was accused,
But kept His silence, as He was abused.
When He was reviled, He reviled not again,
It was as tho’ His heart smiled, thru’ all the pain.
He could have called down, angels to rescue,
But He thought only, of me and of you.
He bought our pardon, on Calvary’s cross,
As His life’s Blood flow’d, He did not count it loss.
He did not save Himself, but gave His life so free,
As a sweet smelling Sacrifice, for you and me.
He did not come down, but on the cross did stay,
He paid our penalty, God accepted His way.
Jesus gave His life, out of love so great,
He did not stop loving, never did hesitate.
He so loved all sinners, in this world so wide,
The Lamb of God went to the cross, and there He died.
Jesus could have done things much differently,
Angels could have removed, His agony.
Have you accepted what Jesus did for you?
Only by believing, can you have life anew.

And He can take away all your shame.
Tomorrow may never come for you,
Now is the time; let Jesus rescue!
Without our Saviour, Hell is your end,
Jesus can save you, and be your friend.
Don’t wait ‘til tomorrow to trust Him,
Do it now, He can remove your sin!
You’re God’s enemy, without His Son,
Trust Christ now, and God’s blessings you’ve won!
Today is sure, tomorrow is not,
Christ should be in your uttermost thoughts.
Just He can keep you from Hell’s judgment,
Just He can give peace and contentment.

John 3:3,15-18, 36; 5:24; 8:24; 14:6, 27)
Worship must come from deep down inside,
Where the Holy Spirit, does abide.
Sincere, earnest, from the heart and soul,
Spirit and truth, takes complete control.
Father, I’m a sinner, you must begin,
You truly must mourn, for all your sin.
You must repent, go the other way,
Beware, don’t return the v’ry next day.
In spirit and truth, we must worship,
It must come from within, not just our lip.
Sacraments, vain pray’r, He’ll not accept,
Outward worship, He’ll always reject.
We must humble ourselves, in God’s sight,
Our inner man, must want to do right.
If you’re God’s child, it must mean much to you,
Be grateful to Him, in all that you do.
God does not want, rituals and ceremonies,
Nor million dollar buildings, or finery.
Worship of statues must not take place,
If we want to see our Lord Jesus’ Face.
God is Spirit, we must not bow to something seen,
His awesome, unseen Presence we must esteem.
We must tremble before His majesty,
If we want to be with God, eternally.

TURN TO JESUS
When your troubles all but swallow you,
Turn to Jesus, who is always true.
When things in your life, get hard to bear,
Turn to Jesus, for He always cares.
When the roads of life, are rough and steep,
With rugged mountains, and canyons deep.
Many others travel roads like this,
Turn to Jesus, He’ll not guide amiss.
Heartache and sorrow plague the young and old,
And we are timid, when we should be bold.
To test our faith, God does allow grief,
Turn to Jesus, for He’ll bring relief.
Each hurt we bear, is a stepping stone,
But we don’t have to walk life’s path alone.
When you feel weary, when you feel weak,
Turn to Jesus, as His strength you seek.
As we journey on to Heav’n’s domain,
Our faith in Christ Jesus must remain.
The light of the Lord, brightens our day.
Turn to Jesus, He’ll show the right way.
We all must go thru’ heartache and strife,
Pain and sorrow are just a part of life.
Sometimes we’ll be happy, sometimes sad,
Turn to Jesus, you’ll have more good than bad.

Vast Realm of Eternity, The . . . June 2009 & Jan.2011 Messages
Consider the life that is to be,
In the vast realm of eternity.
Do you think, of what the future holds?
Will you e’er walk, on that street of gold?
The river - - - clear and pure, did you know?
The water of life, from God’s Throne flows.
In the midst of the street, on each side,
Is the tree of life, that God provides.
No more curse, shall e’er again be found,
Just blessings from the Lord, will abound.
We shall at last see, His precious Face,
And first hand feel, His amazing grace.
There shall never be, any more night,
Just the brilliance, of our Saviour’s Light.
No sun or moon, will this City need,
Glory from God and the Lamb, shall proceed.
No more death, sorrow, crying or pain,
From all these things, we shall abstain.
Nothing that defiles, shall enter in,
Gone will be, all wickedness and sin.
Consider now, the other life to be,
In the vast realm of eternity.
Most will go in, thru’ Hell’s one lone gate,
The Lake of Fire, is the sinner’s fate.
No exit doors, just smoke and darkness,
Here, God’s Glory is gone; He won’t bless.
God’s wondrous Presence, you won’t e’er see,
You’ll be bann’d for e’er, from His mercy.
Agonizing screams, will never cease,
Christ is not there, so you’ll have no peace.
All the wonder of Heav’n, you’ll never see,
Just non-stop suff’ring, eternally.
Only TWO roads, to eternity,
One leads to bliss, the other - - - agony.
Your future in your own hands, you hold,
Eternal suff’ring - - - OR the street of gold.

“Verily, verily, I say unto thee,”
Jesus says this oft, to you and to me.
And whene’er He uses these special words,
I advise you to listen; He wants to be heard!
Nicodemus came to Jesus in the night,
To discuss God’s Kingdom; that was the plight.
Jesus simply said to him, e’er so plain,
“Verily, verily, you must be born again.”
The Jews tried to trap Him, what e’er He’d do,
He did great wonders; they did misconstrue.
“Verily, verily,” He said to them in strife,
“You must believe God sent me to have eternal life.”
Jesus tells we can’t live by bread alone,
We must accept His work, our sins to atone.
Verily, verily, He’s the One God has giv’n,
The ‘True Bread’ the Father has sent from Heav’n.
“Verily, verily, I say unto you,”
I pray you listen, for His words are true.
“He that believes on me, has eternal life,”
What little to ask, and we’re rid of strife.
He offers eternal life; o’er and o’er again,
A ‘gift’ of God, thru’ Christ, He tells so plain!
“Verily, verily,” He’s saying to you,
Open your heart; let Him in; so easy to do!

Vict’ry is Mine
Thank You Jesus, for vict’ry is mine,
Let Your great Light, in my life shine!
Just You can help me walk pleasing to You,
Faithfully guiding, in all that I do!
Vict’ry is mine, for Heaven awaits,
You promised, You would open those gates.
You have reserved a “mansion” for me,
I praise You Jesus, for my vict’ry.
Vict’ry is mine, sin’s burden has fled,
Too the guilt I carried, with much dread.
Satan’s pow’r o’er me came to and end,
When I accepted my Saviour and Friend!
Vict’ry is mine, I have joy and peace,
Worry and distress, You caused to cease.
Doubt is gone, now I simply believe,
Since Jesus into my heart I received.
Vict’ry is mine, but content I can’t be,
I must tell how You, can give vict’ry.
My faith is worthless if I don’t obey,
“Go ye therefore,” I must tell and portray.

WALKING CLOSE ENOUGH . . . Are You?
Are you walking close enough to Him?
Satan’s just waiting to step right in.
As you walk, do you carry a load?
He’ll help you bear your burden on the road.
As you are walking, don’t fall behind,
The closer to God; the more peace of mind!
In your walk with Him, don’t leave a gap,
Or Satan steps in; he ne’er does nap!
Walk as close to God as you can walk,
Or you may not hear when God does talk.
If you’re too far away, Him to hear,
You may hear Satan, for he is near.
Do you walk today, in fellowship?
God wants you near, let me give you this tip.
Satan does lurk in the shadows drear,
Walk as close as you can; to God draw near.
Satan will look for every chance,
And try with evil, you to enhance.
That’s why it’s so important to you,
To walk close to God: He’s always true!

WE CAN’T SEE AHEAD
There’s no way we can see beyond the door,
And we do not know what God holds in store.
We can only humbly kneel and pray,
For pow’r and wisdom to serve Him each day.
The devil does tempt us relentlessly,
With doubt, pain, sorrow and misery.
We never know what lies up ahead,
It may be good things, but it may be dread.
Tho’ we climb a mountain, and see a long way,
We never know what’s in store for that day.
But when we in pray’r, bow our humble heart,
There’s truly not a better way to start.
Tho’ we may not know where our path may lead,
God promises grace that we might succeed.
By faith we can pierce the unknown haze,
By claiming God’s Promise, and giving Him praise.
One sweet day we will reach the glorious heights,
And claim our home in that City so bright.
For now we must trust God implicitly,
Until our time for eternal serenity.
By: His servant: Connie Kramer Mar.14, 2000 # 664
We must keep our life both clean and strong,
To keep us from deceit, and our heart from wrong.
We must shut the door on hate and pride,
And to love and kindness, open wide!
We must accept what comes, cheerfully,
And turn life’s conflicts, to harmony.
We must help that one with a heavy load,
And lead lost sheep, to the right road.
We must know what we have, is not our own,
Ev’rything, ev’rywhere, is Gods’ alone!
We must take care of all that’s around,
Ev’rything that in our path is found.
We must know that we are never alone,
And trust that the best road will be shown.
We must ask that just good, from our life flow,
If peace with God, we will ever know.
We must love God with our heart and soul,
And let Jesus take complete control.
We must one another, truly love,
And have compassion, like God above.
We all must grow wiser, with each day,
Love, mercy and kindness, we must display!
We must speak only words that are kind,
And keep pure our hearts, our thoughts and minds.

WE MUST BELIEVE
We must believe as true, God’s most Holy Word,
If we expect in Heaven, to get a reward.
We must believe, everything God says is true,
Our awesome God does not lie, to me and you!
We must believe, that Jesus’ Name is Holy,
Or you’re with those who use His Name, in blasphemy!
We must believe, that Jesus is the Son of God,
Or you’re with Satan, and his damnable fraud!
We must believe, that the Lord Jesus IS God,
Many do not believe this, the whole world abroad.
False religions teach, damnable heresies,
That will lead you, to Hell’s eternal agony.
We must believe, Jesus paid our sin’s penalty,
He made Heaven possible, for you and me.
Jesus’ wondrous love, I cannot comprehend,
Besides being God, He is an awesome Friend!
The commandments of men, you must not believe,
Be wise and only, the Truth of our God receive.
The devil and his children, will tell you lies,
For the Sacrifice of Jesus, they do deny!
You must not listen, to damnable heresies,
They will lead you, to Hell’s fire for eternity.
Please believe God, and all that He has to say,
He tells us clearly, Jesus is the only Way!
By: His servant, Connie Kramer Dec.18, 2018 #1425
THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY TO GOD THE FATHER, WHO IS IN HEAVEN!!!
John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. (KJV) Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. (KJV)
Only JESUS can save your soul! Please believe this!
*****Why should we believe the Bible?
We should believe the Bible because it is God speaking to us. Some people demand proofs that the Bible is the Word of God, while others recognize it is Truth as coming from God (Mat.7:13-15). TRUE Christians know there is something very special about Jesus and His work, and when they read the Bible they feel its power and truth, while others simply refuse to accept Him and the Bible. As for me, I know the Bible is true because of the many prophecies. When I read where something is declared to happen, and then read where that event happened, to the letter, I know the Bible is true. We should believe the Bible because it is true, and it is from the One and Only True God (2 Tim.3:16; Heb.4:12; 2 Pet.1:19-21). Cults teach another Jesus and another gospel (2 Cor.11:4). Their Jesus CANNOT save you from Hell. Some cults teach that their Jesus is a brother of the devil, begotten through sexual intercourse between god and his goddess wife who both came from another planet. That is NOT the Jesus of the Bible. Others teach that their Jesus is Michael the Archangel who became a man. That is NOT the Jesus of the Bible. Still others crucify their Jesus’ over and over again. That is NOT the Jesus of the Bible. The TRUE JESUS died only ONCE to pay OUR sin’s penalty (Heb.7:27; 9:12, 28; 10:10; 1 Pet. 3:18), and God the Father accepted His Sacrifice for us as ‘Paid in full’. Neither can any commandments of men, the false doctrines of false religions made up by men, save your soul, only the Gospel of Christ Jesus can keep you from Hell! (Mat.15:9; Mk.7:7; Tit.1:14).
*****Jesus IS God!
Jesus is prayed to: (Jn.14:14; Acts 7:55-60; 1 Cor. 1:2).
Jesus is worshipped: (Mat.2:1-2, 11; 14:33; 28:8-9; Heb.1:6-8).
Jesus cleanses from us sin: (1 Jn.1:9; 1 Jn.2:1-2).
Jesus forgives sins: (Mat.9:1-7; Lk.5:20; 7:48).
*****Who IS the TRUE JESUS?
The Bible tells us there is only ONE God in all existence (Isa.43:10; 44:6, 8; 45:5), that being our awesome Triune God: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit (Gen. 1:26; Mat.3:16-17; Lk.3:22; Jn.1:31-34; 1 Cor.12:4-6; 2 Cor.13:14; Eph.2:18; 1 Jn.5:7. Rev.1:4-6).
The TRUE JESUS, is the Jesus that is taught in Holy Word of God. He is both God and Man! (Isa.7:14; 9:6; Mat.1:23; Lk.1:35; Jn.1:1, 14; Col.2:9; Heb.1:8). He is the Second Person of the Trinity. The TRUE JESUS has two natures, He is BOTH God and Man! Believing in Jesus means you believe that He is God and Man. And too, we must believe the Gospel of Jesus Christ, which clearly tell us of His death, burial and resurrection (1 Cor.15:1-4).
*****What is TRUE belief?
We must believe in the TRUE JESUS, and part of that belief is to have faith in what He did on the cross for us. We must believe Jesus paid the full penalty of our sins (Jn.19:30). We must believe that He gave His life as a Perfect Sacrifice for us, and that His Father accepted that Sacrifice as full and complete payment of our sins when we believe (Jn.3:15-17)! The devil and his children (1 Jn.3:10), admit that God does exist (Jam.2:19), but they do NOT have a trusting faith in God, that gives them eternal live in Heaven, whereas a TRUE child of God does!
*****Salvation (eternal life in Heaven) is only by faith in Christ Jesus.
Many churches falsely teach that to be saved from your sins, you must believe in God, but also do good works. This is false because we are justified (declared not guilty before God) by faith in Jesus (Rom.3:24, 28; 5:1), NOT by any works we do (Jn.3:36; 5:24; Rom.4:1-5; 6:23; Eph.2:8-9). False teachers deny the Lord Jesus, and their end is swift destruction (2 Thes.1:8-9; Rev.20:15). Matthew 7:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. (KJV) The Word of God has MUCH to say about false teachers and false doctrines. BEWARE my friend. We today are invaded by these smooth talking wolves bringing nice sounding words that will lead you to HELL!
We need to be, with our Saviour more,
To worship, to praise, and to adore.
This is true life, to be with our Lord,
Trusting, obeying; we’re in accord.
We need to hear our sweet Jesus more,
Only He can guide you thru’ Heav’n’s door.
We need to listen, as our Lord speaks,
His love and great mercy we should seek.
We need to love our great Saviour more,
Just He can give what Heav’n has in store.
To love Him, we must love our brethren,
His Word clearly states, His Word is plain.
We need to serve our wondrous Master more,
And show reverence for our Creator.
Serving Him is the least we can do,
Consider what He’s done, for me and you.
Be penitent, and fall at His Feet,
Only Jesus can make us complete.
We must acknowledge our unworthiness,
We need Christ, for God to truly bless.
We need to obey Christ Jesus more,
Then God, on us, His blessings will pour.
Keep His commandments, if Him we love,
Only then are we fitted for above.

WE NEED NOT WALK ALONE
Troubling times are encountered in life,
We’ll experience sorrow, pain and strife.
But we need not walk life’s path alone,
Give Christ your burden; He’ll make it His own.
Many fierce storms in life we’ll face,
Haunting mem’ries, we can’t seem to erase.
But we need not walk life’s road afraid,
Jesus is near; He’ll comfort and aid.
Tho’ pain and sorrow may come our way,
We can look forward to a better day.
Worry need not hinder life’s path as we walk,
Christ is near, with His comforting talk.
If we’re God’s child, we don’t walk alone,
Jesus will guide, and make right roads known.
No matter how severe our agony,
Christ’s Presence is there, for you and me.
All your troubles may ne’er go away,
But His Presence makes a much better day.
We can do all things with His great pow’r,
He’ll help carry our load, ev’ry hour.

WHAT DOES GOD EXPECT FROM US?
We are to believe God, whatever He says,
Study His Word, every one of your days.
Have faith in Him, confidence and trust,
For with Him, these things are a must.
We are to love God, with out entire being,
Love Him, completely, without ever seeing!
Body, soul and mind, each hour of the day,
Put Him first in all things, in every way!
We are to obey God, this Jesus has said,
When we love and obey, we have nothing to dread!
Accept Jesus, love God, then your fellow man,
This God expects of us, ‘tis also His plan!
We are to be thankful to God, in all things,
For He blesses daily, in what He does bring!
Even thank Him, for what you think to be bad,
In the end it’ll work out, and you’ll be glad.
Always thank and praise God, for all He has done,
And be so very grateful, for His only Son.
God really does love the sacrifice of praise,
The fruit of our lips, let’s continually raise!
We are to fear, or revere God all the day through,
For He is so very awesome, great and true!
This deep down respect, we must have for our God,
No matter where we may be; here or abroad!
We are to serve God, and do try to win souls,
Serving our Maker; this must be our goal!
Honor and glorify Him, in actions and speech,
Commit your life to Him, and Heav’n you shall reach!

WHAT DOES GOD HATE??
Did you ever wonder? “What does God hate?”
His Word will tell us, and tell us straight.
Idols are an abomination,
Cursed are they; no matter the nation!
Sacrificing children, kindles God’s wrath,
In days of old, or on today’s path.
Abortion is selfish sacrifice,
Taking that life, friend, you’ll pay the price!
Witchcraft, horoscopes, and divination,
All to God are degradation.
Fortune tellers, and necromancers,
Are hated by our Heav’nly Father.
Homosexuals, and sodomy,
Are hated by God, in great degree.
Sodom and Gomorrah, God did destroy,
For these wicked evils, they did employ.
Cheating, pride, murder, discord, and lies,
Stubbornness too, our God does despise.
Offerings of the wicked, God does hate,
Wickedness, of all rulers, so great.
He that justifieth the wicked,
Are abominable, His Word has said.
Too, if someone does condemn the just,
God hates and looks on them with disgust.
Mocking God’s prophets, and God’s One Son,
Brings down God’s wrath, when Jesus you shun.
God’s great wrath will abide upon you,
Only Christ from that wrath can rescue,

WHAT WILL I SAY???
What will I say, to the Almighty Judge?
When on His decisions, He won’t budge?
I can beg and cry, and for mercy plead,
But it’ll be too late, my words He won’t heed.
Just what will I say, at the Judgment Seat?
When the All-knowing Judge I finally meet?
I know He’ll have records of all I’ve done,
I won’t put anything o’er, God’s own Son.
He’ll know about the things, I did not do,
And He’ll know about, the wrongs I did too.
Rewards or loss of rewards, will come my way,
As I consider this, what will I say?
I must NOW really think, of how I live,
I must confess my sins, so God can forgive.
I must walk with Christ, on the narrow path,
I must live righteous, to avoid God’s wrath.
NOW is when I should think, of the Judgment Seat,
For one day soon, the Great Judge I’ll meet.
Will He be pleased, with my service to Him?
What will I say, on this day O so grim?
I will be judged, on all works I have done,
When I come Face to face, with God’s own Son.
All His judgments will be righteous and just,
What will I say, to my Lord whom I trust?
Soon in the future, will come Judgment Day,
I have no idea, of what I will say.
I look to this day with uneasiness,
I must live my life, so my Lord will bless.

The life you lived, will pass by your eyes,
Things you've forgotten, will re-arise.
Books on us all, Almighty God keeps,
Our awesome God, ne'er slumbers or sleeps.
Our Creator God, knows our ev'ry thought,
No way you can lie, you're already caught!
He knows our heart, for it He can see,
On Judgment day, we shall speak truthfully.
What will you say, what will you try to hide?
Will you be afraid, or will fears subside?
You shall stand, before the Great Judge one day,
When Judgment Day comes, what will you say?
There shall be judgments, not just one, but two,
Each of us shall be judged, both me and you!
God's children shall be, at the Judgment Seat,
Satan's children face, the Great White Throne's heat.
Before which of these judgments, will you be?
As you walk onward, to your destiny?
The Judgment Seat means, that Heav'n awaits,
The Great White Throne means, a no-exit gate!
What will you say, to Christ Jesus today?
IF you want Heav'n, there is NO other way!
Almighty God, you MUST believe,
Trust and accept Christ, and Him receive!
You must be born again, to gop to heav'n,
Or a "mansion" to you, will NOT be giv'n.
All Satan's children, shall go to Hell,
And there in agony, for e'er shall dwell.

WHEN NO ONE ELSE . . .
When no one else, will listen to you,
Jesus is a Friend, loving and true!
Loyal and faithful, because He cares,
He’ll always listen; He’s always there!
When no one else, will consoles in sorrow,
Jesus soothes you, now and tomorrow!
Tho’ you may weep and mourn in your grief,
He’ll always bring comfort and relief!
When no one else, will come to your aid,
Jesus will help you, don’t be afraid!
Compassionate and gentle is our Lord,
Doing for us, in willing accord!
When no one else cares, if things go wrong,
They all go away, and you’re not strong.
Jesus is there, with His awesome pow’r,
To change things around; you need not cow’r!
When no one else cares, if you’re lonely,
You feel forlorn, you’re in misery.
Jesus will not desert or abandon you,
His gracious Presence, is there anew.
When ev’ry one else, has forsaken you,
You can always trust, Jesus so true!
He will never leave, never forsake,
Whether you’re asleep, or wide awake!
When ev’ry one else, turns and runs away,
Count on Jesus, each and ev’ry day!
He will always be the true Friend we need,
No matter your plight, He’s there, with speed.

WHERE IS HE?
Is He at the bottom of your faith?
Do you trust Him with your ev’ry breath?
Only Jesus can set your soul free,
As you ponder your life; where is He?
Is He at the root of your ev’ry joy?
Your grief and heartache, He can destroy.
He can give peace and serenity,
As you explore your soul; where is He?
Is He on the throne of your own heart?
Does He have rule o’er your ev’ry part?
He is the ‘King’ of both you and me,
As you do consider; where is He?
Is He present in your words and deeds?
Do you imitate Him, and His Word heed?
We should live for Him; from sin flee,
As you contemplate this; where is He?
Is He before you, and at journey’s end?
He’s your Lord and Saviour, and your Friend.
To eternal life, He holds the ‘Key’,
As you reflect on this; where is He?

Who don't . . . want to go to Heav'n one day?
But, "few" choose to walk, that narrow way!
God's Word clearly states, "trust and obey,"
And says the Jesus, is the only Way!
Who don't . . . want God to forgive their sins?
Faith in Jesus, is the Way to win!
Justified by His grace, we are God's heir,
Because on the cross, our sin Christ did bear!
Who don't . . . want the blessing of God's peace?
And the chain of the devil, released?
With the armor of God, we stand tall,
Without it, Satan wins, and we fall!
Who don't . . . want the Lord's amazing grace?
And one day to see, His awesome Face?
When we can thank Him, for all He's done,
Our precious Redeemer, God's own Son!
Who don't . . . want to meet Christ in the sky?
This is for all, who would not Christ deny.
A special meeting, on a special day,
When our new bodies, we will display!
Who don't . . . want the Father's Divine love?
Great love sent from Him, from far above!
What a fantastic day that will be,
When we get to Heav'h, eternally!

You need Jesus to get to Heaven!
“WHY DO I NEED CHRIST?”
“Why do I need Christ?” so many ask,
As they continue in sin to bask.
“Jesus” they say, “Of Him I have no need,”
As they strive for worldly goods, in sheer greed!
“Why do I need Christ?” some scoff and jeer,
The ‘Good News’ of Him, they don’t want to hear!
They keep traveling down the devil’s path,
Storing up for themselves the Father’s wrath!
“Why do I need Christ?” I said once too,
For I did rebel, the same as you!
Then one sweet day ev’ry thing did change,
Jesus, my whole life, did rearrange!
I clearly saw my NEED for Him was great,
And no longer did I hesitate!
I open’d the door to my stubborn heart,
Christ came in, and gave me a whole new start!
He saved my soul from Hell’s agony,
And from the bonds of sin, He set me free!
He replaced my cold heart, with one of love,
And filled it with peace and joy from above!
Why do YOU need Christ? I’ll tell you true,
Just Jesus can make a brand new you!
He’ll give you the ‘key’ to Heaven’s door,
And grant great blessings just He holds in store!

Without Jesus, O’ where would I be?
In the dark depths, of Hell’s agony.
God’s Plan was to save, sinners from Hell,
And give access to Heav’n, where He dwells,
God sent, His only begotten Son,
The Old Covenant, was ended, done.
The Gospel of Christ Jesus, took its place,
Bloody sacrifice was replaced, by God’s grace.
Without Jesus, we’re God’s enemy,
Future things to come, we cannot see.
With faith in Christ Jesus, all things change,
The Holy Ghost, our life does rearrange.
When Christ Jesus, is our Advocate,
With God the Father, we highly rate.
Faith allows us, a great distance see,
Things that to most, are a mystery.
We can see, Jesus come in the clouds,
And we can see ourselves, in that crowd.
We too see, things we don’t want to see,
Millions, headed for Hell’s agony.
The Kingdom of Christ, we see out there,
We too see obedience, everywhere.
With a rod of iron, Jesus shall reign,
The perfect will of God, He’ll maintain.
We too can see, the Heav’nly city,
And we get a glimpse, of its glory.
We can also see, the mansions there,
Prepared by the Saviour, in loving care!
Our inheritance in Heav’n, we can see,
Our future home, for eternity.
No more to roam, as pilgrims on Earth,
We see a place, of much better worth!

YOU CAN’T SIN AND WIN
If we persist, and continue in sin,
A “mansion” in Heav’n, we will never win!
When we ask Christ to come into our heart,
From all sin and evil, we must depart!
You can’t sin and win! God clearly states,
For you will never see the Pearly Gates!
A true hypocrite, is what you are,
God will cast you from Him, very far!
If in your sin, you demand to remain,
Peace and rest of Heav’n, you shall not gain!
You cannot win, if you don’t turn away,
From all sin’s wickedness, this v’ry day!
It’s not enough, to believe there’s a God,
You must obey, as this life you trod.
Faith and obedience, together are bound,
Where there is one, the other is found!
You can’t sin and win, in Jesus’ eyes,
Sin is something, God does despise!
To abide in sin, God you displease,
Turn from your sin, and God’s wrath you appease!
You cannot win, God wants you to know,
Willful sin leads you, to Hell below!
You must forsake sin, to be God’s friend,
Or to the heights of Heav’n, you’ll not ascend!
By: His servant, Connie Kramer Nov. 17, 1999 # 584
YOU DO HAVE A CHOICE
There’s not many sermons preached on ‘Hell’,
Preachers are reluctant, this subject to tell.
Hell is so very real; it does exist,
And you will go there, if Christ you resist!
Hell is a choice; one you make on your own,
Just you can decide; when the “Way” is shown.
There’s just two destinations; Heav’n and Hell,
You make the choice, which place you shall dwell.
Are you headed for the judgment of Hell?
‘Twill be total darkness, the pain I can’t tell!
Agony and suffering; complete distress,
All this you can avoid, if Christ you confess!

YOU EXPEDITE . . . . Aug.2006 & Feb.2008 Messages
When I feel low, and day’s dark as night,
Your love and comfort, you expedite.
Always there, in the blink of an eye,
When I’m in need, you never deny.
You expedite your wisdom and pow’r,
And it arrives at just the right hour.
Your infinite love and compassion,
There for your children; you never shun.
When the world looks down on me in hate,
I recall that you too, had this fate.
When I try always to do what’s right,
Your wise, loving words, you expedite.
When Satan steps in with trials great,
You’re there; my heart and soul to elate.
Persecution will come, ev’ry day,
But your love you expedite and portray.
Your love and kindness, grace and mercy,
You expedite to the likes of me.
Without you Lord, I could not get by,
But you’re always there, and won’t deny!

YOUR HOLY BOOK
Your Holy Book always rightly guides,
Wisdom comes from the Truth you provide.
Bless me Lord, as I read Your Word today,
Let me understand, Your will and Your way!
Your Holy Book is Words of purity,
Your will is for us, to live righteously.
You want for us, only what is best,
When we obey You, we are truly blest!
True wisdom can come, only from You,
So sad it’s chosen, by just a “few.”
You can teach us, if we want to know,
But we must willingly, to Your Word, go!
We can achieve life eternally,
You give us this “Gift,” and it is free.
You tell us so plainly in Your Holy Book,
But so very few, venture to look!
You clearly tell us, there’s just one Way,
But most won’t read, what You have to say.
We must believe in Your precious Son,
When we do, eternal life has begun!
Thank You Father, for Your Holy Word,
Thank You for Jesus, Saviour and Lord.
Thank You for loving and caring for me,
YOUR WILL, YOUR WAY
Your will, Your way, is all that I ask,
Give me strength and faith, for ev’ry task.
When doubt creeps in, I should always pray,
“Increase my faith,” is what I should say.
Your will, Your way, let it always be,
Please Lord, keep Your watchful eye on me.
Dear Lord, don’t let me stray from the path,
I want no part, of Your righteous wrath.
Your will, Your way, or it will be wrong,
Let me trust in You Lord, make me strong.
I tend to roam, from Your path of light,
I need Your Spirit, to guide me right.
Your will, Your way, each and ev’ry day,
I must feel Your Presence, so I don’t stray.
“I will never leave, nor forsake thee,”
I claim this Promise, for my vic’try.
Your will, Your way, or I want it not,
For with the Blood of Christ, I was bought.
I want not, my Lord to disobey,
Lord, I want You, to show me the way.
Your will, Your way, most refuse to choose,
Can’t they see, in the end they will lose?
Yes! There is Heav’n, but also a Hell,
A frightful place, you don’t want to dwell.
Your will, Your way Lord, or Heav’n is lost,
Have you ever, considered the cost?
Your eternal destiny, you do hold,
Eternal agony, or bliss untold.
